The Fox-Pitt Eventing crew have proven themselves to be something of YouTube maestros during lockdown, keeping us all entertained with insights into the inner workings of Wood Lane Stables, an impromptu ‘home international’, and tonnes of top tips for all of us to steal from their worldbeating team.
This week, they team up with eventing organiser Alec Lochore – the man behind Musketeer Event Management, who stage major internationals such as Barbury and Houghton, and the Consultant Equestrian Sport Manager for the Tokyo Olympics — to find out how eventing might look upon its resumption. With British Eventing announcing its green light for a mid-July kick-off, Alec’s insight makes for some particularly interesting viewing. How will the sport look? What should riders and their support teams prepare for? Will masks be required? Alec answers all your burning questions and more.
